Funds currently open:
This year’s Henry Duncan Grants will fund community-based support for mental health and wellbeing and has three strands:
- Organisation Grants

The Armed Forces Third Sector Resilience Fund has been established to support the sustainability of third sector Armed Forces Community organisations whose operations and income have been negatively affected by COVID-19. The fund will offer grants towards core operating and running costs until the end of March 2022.
PDI gives money to charities that support children and young people in Scotland. Funded charities work to increase opportunities, wellbeing and resilience of children and young people affected by alcohol and or drugs.
The Local Support Fund – Micro Grants, is focused on small community-based groups which deliver frontline services to support people who use or used drugs, people in recovery and families affected by someone else’s drug use. This vital support is often delivered with very limited funding which means that small groups can be stretched to their limits. In some cases, the pandemic will have put more of a strain on finances, making it even harder to provide support for people and families when they most need it. This fund is designed to help these groups by providing grants which will offer some financial security for planning and delivering support to improve the wellbeing of both people who use drugs and their families.
#ShiftThePower supports organisations with passionate people to make meaningful change in their communities. The fund is now open to grassroots organisations and charities with an income of £400,000 or less whose work fits one of two strategic themes:
- Gender Justice – supporting opportunities for gender and LGBTQI+ equality.
- A Safe Place to Be – supporting people who have experienced homelessness or have been forced from their homes in order to live safely.
*Please note that this programme is not an open application process.
Stewart Investors have donated £150,000 to Corra Foundation to be distributed to Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities affected by the coronavirus pandemic. This work is being developed by Corra, and will work alongside Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities and networks.
